Publisher's Summary

Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively. Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of the other's ethnic cousins. As the story unfolds, we discover how they came together, how they help warring parents and children to come together, and how we too can find our way out of the struggles that weigh us down. The choice between peace and war lies within us. As one of the characters says, "A solution to the inner war solves the outer war as well." This book offers more than hope - it shows how we can prevent the conflicts that cause so much pain in our lives and in the world.

Interesting content but felt the story format was a bit patronising

This book was recommended to me and whilst the message and process has merit and is useful the fact that it needed a story (I still have no idea if it is factual or fictional) which at times was a bit cringeworthy was a bit patronising. Also, the narrators vocal talents and characterisation showed promise, at times it was a bit scary...

Upshot is don't be put off by the format or strange voices, persevere because there is some important stuff in here.

Any additional comments?

It would be really useful in this and a number of other books to have some diagrams which could shown in the app as well when they are being described in the audio.
